Yay, I made it through the weekend! Yesterday was probably the worst day. This weekend I felt like I was in the first trimester of pregnancy and on top of that yesterday I felt like I had the flu (you know the body aches / can’t get comfortable type). I woke up this morning feeling better than I did yesterday morning so that is a great sign. I have not had any problems with sustaining my weight. My stomach feels more settled to have food in it so I continue to eat. The bland food is pretty boring though.
I was able to get out some over the weekend. Jacob had three soccer games and my Dad and I watched them while sitting in his car away from the sun and heat. I am so glad I got to see those games and watch him score two goals in the last game.
I was given another surprise yesterday from many of you. Allen spent all weekend long putting together a playlist of Kim’s Crew song requests that many of you passed along to me for inspiration. I was so touched by this. Thank you so much. I so far have many, many favorites and only have just begun to listen to them all. One of the first songs on there “I Will Survive” stuck out to me along with many others. Even Ansley’s request of Justin Beiber’s “Never Say Never” was so touching!
I was doing some thinking the other day. From the time I first noticed the lump until when I will be completely done with this whole process will be nine months. I carried both Jacob and Ansley for nine months each and was pretty miserable with pregnancy side effects. I guess I am now carrying a “chemo baby”. And just like I carried them for nine months to give them life I am now doing the same for myself.
I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend. I know I feel so blessed to have spent mine with both my husband and dad.
